Grocery Store Phobia?
Okay, all my life I have loved food (as I'm sure most people do, so I'm not an anomaly there).
Since I have really gotten serious about this whole weight-loss thing, I am terrified of what I eat. I will go double check the calories, the portions, the fat grams, carb grams, protein grams over and over again.
I guess I just don't want all the hard work that I have done at the gym to come undone due to a momentary lapse in judgment.
Today, I was supposed to go to the grocery store to get something for my mom and I was in tears on the way there. I ended up going to a convenience store to get it just so I wouldn't go into the grocery store...I'm scared that when I have money I will go over and buy a slice of pizza, or get a carton of chinese takeout there.
I'm sure that eventually this anxiety will go away. It's just that I know that if I walk into that grocery store and smell all the food I will tell myself "One piece of pizza is NOT going to kill you, you'll just do an extra 20 minutes on the elliptical tomorrow". But that is NEVER the way it works. Once I've had one "no-no" I end up just completely forgetting about eating correctly and exercising.
Does anyone else feel this anxiety at the grocery store? What do you do to curb it?
